TLC Wants Fans To Help Name Their Comeback Album
TLC’s forthcoming fifth studio LP is set to arrive on June 30, but the Atlanta-based outfit is looking for help from their fans to come up with a name for the project.
The R&B/Pop/Hip Hop group’s manager, Bill Diggins, wrote the following update on Kickstarter:
Hey Kickstarter Family, The album date is firm, June 30th is the release of the new TLC album that you made happen! Tionne and Chilli have been working night and day to hit this date. The video and a photo shoot on April 18th, 19th, 20th. I hope that you all read the article in The Guardian last week on why TLC’s comeback is so important, it is a great read on the group that you love and you should be proud that you made this album happen. The Waterfall’s version from the voice was magical and received 40 million views in a week!! Ed Sheeran gave some of his publishing to the writers of No Scrubs and TLC sold out in London in one minute…it was a blessed month for us and we finally feel a little wind at our back.
ONE MORE THING….. We need your help…let’s hear your suggestions for the album title! Tionne and Chilli are still undecided so looking to you for inspiration.
Thank you for being there for TLC
TLC funded the album through a Kickstarter campaign which raised over $430,000.
This will be the first project recorded by the Grammy-winning group without the late Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes.
Left Eye died from a car accident in 2002, seven months before TLC’s 3D album was release.
During their run in the 1990’s, Lopes, Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas, and Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins created three multi-platinum LPs.
1994’s CrazySexyCool is certified Diamond with over 11 million units, and it is reported to be the best-selling album by an American female group in history.
